Another day, another trip to the dump



And this time my car started right up! I've been taking a garbage bag full of old toys to the dump almost every day this week (we don't pay for trash pick-up, we do it ourselves for free). I know better, but so many of Jacob's toys had batteries in them that corroded and into the trash they went. Toys that have a gazillion pieces? In the trash.

Next week DH and I will tackle the bookcase area - the thrifts will be closed early in the week (so they don't accept donations when they closed) but I remembered that the library takes book/video/cd donations anytime they are open.

Free trash removal is my favorite. I prefer that, but Jeff says no.

I am a recycling nut - I take the paper off of canned goods so the paper can go into the paper recycling and the can goes into the can recycling. Alkaline batteries unfortunately are not accepted at our landfill for recycling. http://www.co.cal.md.us/residents/waste/recycling/
